To our publishers and customers

[June 16, 2019] The site has now stopped selling patterns.

[April 30, 2019] After almost 11 successful years in business, Patternfish will cease selling patterns on 16 June, 2019.

We will continue to make our customers' stashes accessible to them to the end of 30 June, 2019, in order to provide them with time to save their purchased patterns to their personal hard drives.

Thank you all so very much for your enthusiastic support over the years.  It has meant an enormous amount to us.

3851 Shawls

These heirloom-quality pieces are equally impressive either as shawls for a discerning woman, or as christening or baptismal wraps for babies. Despite appearances, neither is particularly hard to knit. The circular shawl is worked in three flat pieces-- first the main outer circumference, all garter stitch; then the border, separate; then the smaller inner piece, also in garter. You then assemble and seam all the flat pieces into the whole. The square piece is worked in st st as a giant square; then the border is worked separately and sewn on; then you make the (27) leaves, and appliqué them on as shown or to taste. Both have an unearthly delicacy. Gauge given over garter stitch for the circular shawl, and st st for the square one, in both cases using 4mm needles.
